Northwest Family YMCA Renovation and Expansion
Northwest Family YMCA Renovation and ExpansionNashville, Tenn. 2011
The Northwest Family YMCA renovation and expansion involved demolishing an existing outdoor pool and replacing it with a new indoor natatorium and adjacent family changing room. The new pool features a zero-depth entry and children’s play structures. Lanes are provided for lap swimming and ample area is included for swim instruction. A steam room, a sauna and a whirlpool are located on the pool deck. Large windows give the natatorium a bright and warm feeling.
The new fitness center was designed for the front of the existing YMCA and includes a variety of exercise equipment. This heavily used area is near the new entrance of the Y, which now offers a fireplace, a café, casual seating and other spaces for gathering or socializing. The project also included the renovation or addition of program spaces such as a group exercise room, a childcare center, a multipurpose room and a teen center.
The project provided much-needed functional upgrades to the YMCA, as well as a new exterior appearance. The added height of the natatorium creates visual interest and draws attention to the facility from Clarksville Highway.
